Client Testimonials

“There are not enough words to explain how much Lola and her team at Maryland Nursing Care LLC has done for my husband and myself.  They are so experienced in dealing with dementia patients and particularly the added complication of my husband’s ankle replacement surgery.  Nana was so caring and professional with my husband…… was able to understand the Doctor’s instructions for his care at home and assisted me in transporting him to appointments.  And the emergency situations when I had to call at the last minute for help and she was there with no questions asked. Now that he is better, we miss her.  I can highly recommend Lola and her team….. you could not find a more compassionate group of professionals.”

“Lola possesses the rare combination of powerful heart and powerful mind. She is extremely strong, smart and competent, while also being extremely warm, loving and kind – she is the ideal caretaker for any vulnerable person. She has a zest for life and a terrific sense of humor – and she can figure out what to do in difficult situations. I trust her and recommend her without hesitation.”

“Lola personally provided exceptional care to my mother for over seven years. Forming her own agency gives Lola an opportunity to extend her professionalism, attention to detail, experience with changing needs, and enormous sensitivity to more families in need.

Lola is an extremely dedicated caregiver herself and able to quickly recognize those traits in others. She did not miss a day in seven years, but more importantly was how she made each day better despite my mother’s declining health. Lola played a vital role in delivering daily care needs, as a companion, as a support for our extended family, as a leader to a care team, and vitally as an advocate for my mother who became unable to speak.

Lola’s commitment to care and extremely high standards is evident in everything she does. She builds systems and protocols to ensure smooth handover in team care situations. She is by nature very observant, a resourceful problem solver, accurately managing detailed inventory lists, and anticipating supply needs. She is a team player and lion-hearted advocate for those in need of care.”

“Lola was my father’s caretaker for the last year of his life. My father was diagnosed with Glioblastoma(fast growing brain tumor) and Lola was there for my father every day.

The duties that Lola performed:

  • Reminding my father to take his meds.
  • Blood sugar, temperature, blood pressure, and weight everyday
  • Make meals
  • Bathing and dressing
  • Keeping my Dad’s room very clean and organized
  • Running errands
  • Going for walks and exercise
  • Singing with my Dad
  • Reading to my Dad
  • A calming force
  • Attentive to my Dad’s moods and kept him smiling
  • Lola was very intuitive and could anticipate my father’s moods and how he was feeling

Over the years our family has hired many caretakers. Lola stands out as the absolute most reliable, caring, organized, effective and thoughtful caretaker we have yet seen. If the position would benefit from a world class caretaker, I would strongly recommend her.

Now that Lola has formed her own agency, Maryland Nursing Care, this will give her a chance to share her qualities of effectiveness, organization, and thoughtfulness to other families in need.”

“I have known and admired Lola for 10 years as I watched her almost daily interactions with my adopted mom who required full time nursing care as a result of dementia. Lola always demonstrated integrity, compassion, reliability and professionalism. When Lola quickly took the initiative to assume responsibility for managing my mom’s other caregivers, appointments and supplies for her daily living, it was clear she was extremely gifted in both hands on care and at the training and supervision of the staff that would foretell her later creating an agency which embodied her unparalleled high standards of care.

I do not think I can begin to express how fortunate my family is to have Lola and her staff now assisting us in the care of my father. Dad has very well managed early stage dementia, but after his ankle surgery we were unprepared for his tremendous decline due to the anesthesia and medications. When we called Lola to ask for someone to assist us, we were panicked and needed help immediately. Lola assigned us a wonderful nurse, Nana, who has been nothing short of an angel. While my father does not always take to strangers or being told what to do, Nana had him quickly engaged in conversation and happy to follow her suggestions as she guided him through daily living activities he would otherwise resist with us. When my mom must leave for work appointments, she is comforted to know my dad is receiving outstanding care and he looks forward to Nana’s arrival. It is without hesitation that I recommend Lola and her team of caregivers to assist those loved ones for whom we want the very best.”

“It is a pleasure for me to write this letter of recommendation for Lola, who had worked as my mother’s caregiver. Lola came highly recommended to me and I was not disappointed. My mother was in a moderate stage of dementia at that time and Lola seemed to have the magic touch with her. Lola was very professional and dependable, while at the same time warm and caring with my mom. She managed to be able to accomplish some aspects of my mother’s care which others had found challenging. Because I trust Lola’s judgement we turned to her and her agency for some fill-in support recently and not surprisingly we were more than satisfied with the caregiver she provided. I would highly recommend Lola in any aspect of the elderly caregiving profession.”
